Bosnian Ambassador to United States to Step Down

No word on who is replacing Dr Turkovic, whom I have met on a couple of occasions. She was always gracious and impressive, and I can only hope that her replacement will be able to live up to her example.

Unfortunately, this is yet another event I cannot attend in person; Bosnians in the US apparently like to keep their weekends free! (In fairness to my job, I am always free to use my annual leave for events like this--I am saving every minute of my vacation time for a planned trip to the Balkans this summer.)

Here is the press release I received from The Bosniak-American Advisory Council for Bosnia and Herzegovina :

Dear Colleagues,

The Bosniak-American Advisory Council for Bosnia and Herzegovina cordially invites you to
the Capitol Hill reception to bid farewell to Her Excellency Dr. Bisera Turkovic, Ambassador of Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Her Excellency Dr. Biser Turkovic:
Final remarks as the Bosnian Ambassador to the United States of America.

Thursday, October 30, 2008 ::: 9.00 a.m. - 11.00 a.m. ::: The Goldren Room ::: Rayburn Building 2168

The Heinrich Boell Foundation sponsored the Catering for the event.
